3 Step Tuesday Nail Art – January 19 2016
Agh! I keep writing 2015! Maybe by July I’ll have it down. Anyway, on to the 3rd installment of 3 Step Tuesday Nail Art! I’m proud of myself that I’ve kept up with this, because for one I am a giant procrastinator and for two I’ve been studying for my certification exam and that has been taking 99% of my free time. I’m excited to be done with it, soon! Anyway, on to the nail art!
1.) Scofflaw Kidnapped by Vikings
2.) Scofflaw Moriarty
3.) Single Chevron Nail Vinyl and Swirly Vinyl (not pictured and no idea where from. Makers, PLEASE put logo stickers on the back of your sheets!!)
Get your nails prepped! I used Moriarty on the index and pinkie, Kidnapped by Vikings on middle fingers. I did two coats, topped with quick dry top coat and let fully dry.
This one was a little tricky. I knew I wanted to get a BIG abstract rose, but I didn’t want to have to resort to a stamp because I wanted to use Moriarty over Kidnapped by Vikings, and it wouldn’t be thick enough. Well, I took a gamble that I could get the look I wanted by combining two vinyls. I laid the chevron down first about the middle of my nails, then carefully placed the swirly over it, with the inner swirl blocked out by the chevron. I dabbed Moriarty over it with the brush. You could use a sponge application, but the brush worked well for me.
I dabbed Moriarty over it with the brush. You could use a sponge application, but the brush worked well for me. Remove the vinyls immediately after application, and done! I think I definitely got the look I was going for, and I love both of these colors together.
